Police arrest suspects fleeing the scene

A 46-year-old man was taken to Health Sciences North last night after being beaten and stabbed during a home invasion.

The victim, whose name has not been released, was alone in his St. Lawrence Street home at around 8:30 p.m. when three men gained entry to his home where they proceeded to beat him with a crow bar and stab him twice in the back with a knife, Greater Sudbury Police said in a news release.

Neighbours called police, who arrived quickly enough to stop a fleeing vehicle, which contained, police allege, the three men involved in the attack, along with a 45-year-old driver who did not participate in the assault, but waited outside while it occurred.

Arrested and charged with assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of marijuana and breaching various court orders are two 17-year-olds and an 18-year-old Sudbury man.

The victim was taken to Health Sciences North. There's no word at this time on the severity of his injuries, but police described them as non-life threatening.

Greater Sudbury Police does not believe robbery was the motive for the assault, describing the attack as personal. The assailants were known to the victim.
